Do Bears Really Love Honey? New York Sanctuary Puts Sweet Treat to the Test

Winnie the Pooh is renowned for his adoration of honey, but do bears really love the sweet stuff?

The Orphaned Wildlife Center, located in Otisville, New York, put it to the test after one of its followers sent in some raw honey as a treat for the sanctuary’s resident rescue bears.

Footage posted to YouTube show two bears eagerly licking the jar of honey, suggesting that they do indeed rate the sticky golden treat – and the results are backed up by experts.

The center nurtures orphaned animals in the hope they can be returned to the wild, and often shares videos and updates about the animals in its care to its YouTube channel and Facebook page. Credit: Kerry Clair via Storyful
